YMCA of Southwest Kansas programs and activities are designed to benefit persons of all backgrounds, and fees are based on the cost of providing each program. While participants are expected to pay their fair share, when financial assistance dollars are available, the YMCA will assist any individual or family that wants to participate but cannot afford the fee. The goal of the YMCA of Southwest Kansas is to see that no one is denied the opportunity to be a member or participate in our program by providing assistance when needed. We accomplish by offering our Healthy Hands Scholarship program. Financial assistance amounts are determined by following the National Poverty Guidelines to determine a scholarship percentage.
